Imagine a Consumer Good almost 1000 years old: Grana Padano cheese is such a thing
While gathering some information on Grana Padano, a type of Parmesan, I discovered to my surprise that it was close to 1000 years old.
Cistercian monks in Chiaravalle (Italy) started making this cheese as a way of saving milk. An unpasteurized, hard, cow milk cheese, it ripens in 12 to 48 months and can be eaten or shaved or grated on your salads or pastas and more. For more details read About.com tasting review.
